Health & Safety

International students should be mindful of their movements, especially, at night, since they do not really know their way around. Students are encouraged to always carry their student's ID and Non citizenship ID cards anything in relation to health with them. For example personal first aid, Personal/Health Insurance ID cards, etc. Be careful of the people you mingle with, especially now, in this era of Global Pandemic. More about students’ safety is discussed during orientation.
